Locked on Women’s Basketball: Atlantic 10, WBL and Candice Dupree

After she became a mom to her four year old twins she realized she might actually have the patience for coaching

It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal and The Next reporter Natalie Heavren breaking down the coaching moves. And the busy offseason in the Atlantic 10.

Natalie talks about Loyola’s women’s basketball program’s potential impact on the Atlantic 10 :

“So this is no knock on the Missouri Valley Conference, which is where Loyola Chicago is coming from, but I think it will put them on more of a national stage. I think the national footprint is going to be really important. And I think that Loyola Chicago especially with Allison Guth, who was hired back in April is going to bring just another competitive team to the Atlantic 10.”

Natalie talks about Candice Dupree and what she is up to now:

“She is participating in the NBA assistant coaches program. And I think one of the best parts of the story and it ended up being my lede was, she didn’t really see herself as a coach. After she became a mom to her four year old twins; she realized she might actually have the patience for coaching. So she had her interest piqued and then had the opportunity arose for her to join the NBA assistant coaches program. And that’s what she’s been doing for the last couple of months.”
